CBS: ‘Face The Nation’ To Go One-Hour Permanently, Mason Joins Jarvis on ‘CBS This Morning’

During its panel at the Television Critics Association Summer press tour, CBS News announced that its Sunday public affairs show “Face the Nation” would become an hour-long program, permanently. The show has been an hour-long since April of this year, and was announced at the time as something of a test.

There is an asterisk to the announcement however, as “Face” will still be rated as two separate half-hours, as the second half-hour is not available in the entire country, and even then is sometimes aired at a much later time than the first half-hour. The first half-hour of most programs rate much higher than the second half-hour, and that is the case with “Face” too.

During the session, CBS News president David Rhodes said that once NFL obligations are complete (in other words, next year), CBS will move to get “Face” rated as a full-hour.

As B&C’s Andrea Morabito notes, CBS also announced that Anthony Mason will become the full-time co-anchor of “CBS This Morning” on Saturdays, joining Rebecca Jarvis.

THR also has quotes from CBS News chairman Jeff Fager (seen above accepting a TCA Award on behalf of “60 Minutes”) and “CTM” EP Chris Licht:

Colorado Shooting: Saturday Update

The network primetime shows went off seemingly without a hitch last night, while the cablers went live well past when they normally switch into taped programming.

This morning, the overage continued. On NBC, Ann Curry did appear on “Today,” though she did not co-anchor as NBC said, but rather contributed to a number of stories, following her “Dateline” anchoring last night.

“CBS This Morning” was anchored by Rebecca Jarvis and Maurice Dubois and led off with a report from Jeff Glor in Colorado:

There were also some notable moments on cable news yesterday.

The Weekend Ticker: Willis, Maddow, Jarvis

  • When she’s not anchoring her Fox Business show, Gerri Willis is an avid golfer. “It teaches really great life lessons — patience (which I am still working on), focus and concentration, as well as honesty,” she tells NJ.com.
  • In honor of Tax Day, CBS business and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis gives Shop It To Me some financial advice. “Think of your tax refund as a fresh opportunity to improve your future,” she says. “Put it toward improving your health or learning a new skill.”

Rebecca Jarvis Ties the Knot

“CBS This Morning” Saturday edition co-anchor Rebecca Jarvis was married last night in Minneapolis. Jarvis, who is also CBS News’ business and economics correspondent, married Matthew Hanson, whom she met at the University of Chicago and later worked with at an investment bank in Chicago. Jarvis tells the New York Times: “By working so closely together for a year, I got to know him very well. I had already seen how well he treated other girls he dated before me, and I knew how genuine he was. Investment banking is a brutal business, but he always had the ability to do the comic-relief thing to help relieve the stress, not just for me but for other members of our group.”

Jarvis would go on to be the runner-up on season four of “The Apprentice” and then, in 2006, to CNBC. Jarvis joined CBS in 2010, and two weeks ago was named co-anchor of the Saturday edition of “CBS This Morning.”
